Homemade Cheese Crackers Ingredients

  • 8 oz of shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons of ice water

How to Make Cheese Crackers

Step 1:

Start by preheating the oven to 350F.

Step 2:

In a large bowl using a hand mixer or bowl of a standing mixer, add the cheese, butter, and salt. Mix until well combined.

Step 3:

Add the flour and mix well. Pour the ice water one tablespoon at a time, mixing after every addition. It should hold together but crumble apart when you break it up using your hands. You can add a little more of ice water if needed.

Step 4:

Divide the dough into two halves and pack together into discs. Cover with parchment paper and chill in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
